Abrasive wear

In contrast to ceramics, polymers and metals usually have much lower hardness values and are far more susceptible to wear. Since wear is defined as the progressive loss of material from the surface of a solid body, the dimensional accuracy in friction situations (tribosystems) is directly related to the resistance to wear of the material used.

The higher the wear resistance, the better the dimensional accuracy in friction applications.

Sample Solutions

Slide rings

Slide rings and mating rings are the two main components of a slide-ring seal. The slide ring and mating ring are in constant contact. However, they do not touch one another but slide over each other.

Slide rails

If metallic materials are used for guides or rails, wear due to friction is unavoidable. Slide rails made of DOTHERM materials offer the benefits of excellent friction and sliding properties, high wear resistance and thermal stability.

Cutting disks

All-ceramic cutting disks have carved out a well-earned reputation in series production facilities over many years.

Goods carriers

Goods carriers are used to hold other products, such as circuit boards. In many cases, they must be electrically insulating, wear-resistant and designed to cope with thermal shock to enable smooth handling.
